As part of its quarterly earnings report, RIM announced that it will delay the launch of BlackBerry 10 yet again. The next update to RIM’s mobile operating system was promised by the end of 2012, but now the company says it won’t release devices running on BlackBerry 10 until the first quarter of 2013.
“Over the past several weeks, RIM’s software development teams have made major progress in the development of key features for the BlackBerry 10 platform; however, the integration of these features and the associated large volume of code into the platform has proven to be more time consuming than anticipated,” the company said.
RIM reported a $518 million loss for the company. It also said that it will slash 5,000 jobs as part of a previously announced restructuring plan.
